Philanthropy Powers CASI's Mission
We appreciate every supporter of CASI who invests their generous gifts of time, talent and treasure to ensure that CASI’s work on behalf of Quad Cities older adults continues. Every gift sustains us, gives us hope for a bright future, encourages us, and supports our mission. Thank you for your consideration.
CASI is an active place week in and week out throughout the year. Over 8000 classes, programs, gatherings, lessons, rehearsals, meals (and the list goes on) are offered each year. For many, these opportunities to gather at CASI are their only times to be with friends, new and old. CASI is like home, staff are like family, and friends are treasured. Laughter is contagious at CASI and care and compassion are always present. The CASI staff is small but mighty, involved and always present.
CASI has a beautiful 40,000 square foot facility to support all of the activities and provide a "home" for thousands of Quad Citizens. We are an independent 501(c)3 senior center, the only comprehensive senior center in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois. CASI is one of only two nationally accredited senior centers in Iowa.
We are seeking partners today who will invest in CASI in order to assist us to maintain the facilities and staff in order to offer top-notch opportunities at CASI.
Health and Wellness
Did you know that CASI has a fitness center as well as an indoor walking track? Both facilities are well used on a regular basis. However we have a vision to develop a comprehensive wellness program and to upgrade the Fit for Life Fitness Center equipment. We believe that CASI is well positioned to provide programing for individuals who desire to simply enhance and maintain good health as well as support those who struggle with health conditions which impact balance, endurance, strength and more.
We have kicked-off our funding effort and have secured initial gifts totaling close to $10,000. The estimate for renovation of the Fitness Center equipment and staffing to develop wellness programming is $100,000. The goal is to secure these funds by early in 2022 so that programs can be in place for the start of our next membership year on July 1, 2022.
We are seeking partners and investors today who will assist us to advance this important component of our mission.
Are you familiar with Jane's Place Adult Day Services or aware that CASI has six full-time professional Senior Advocates working behind the scenes to answer the needs of thousands of vulnerable older adults in our community?
CASI's Jane’s Place Adult Day Services meets a critical need in our community. Serving those who struggle with dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, brain injury, and other physical and mental disabilities, Jane's Place offers full days of safe and secure activities and care. Dozens of individuals spend their days with caring and compassionate staff. Whenever possible, Jane's Place clients participate in CASI programs for further enrichment. The daily rates for Jane's Place are low and manageable thanks to the generosity of individuals in our community.
CASI's Senior Advocacy Team serves as a lifeline for many of the most vulnerable older adults in our community. They assist with everything from grief support to food insecurity, to elder abuse situations, to providing warm clothes during winter months, and fans for those hot summer months. CASI Advocates provide these services FREE of charge.
We are seeking ongoing investors in CASI's behind the scenes programs to ensure that our most vulnerable are supported. We are ready, willing and able to serve our senior community with your ongoing support.
